Which genre will be most popular for Gen 8?

FPSs
RPGs
Platformers
Action/Adventure
Puzzle
Other

Last Gen was clearly dominated by the FPS genre. Most console gens have one genre that sticks out and stays consistently popular throughout, but it doesnt always carry over to the gen after it.

Will Gen 8 be dominated by the FPS genre like Gen 7 before it? Or will another genre take its place, and if so, which?

I think open world or ''semi'' open world will dominate. TPS basically.



I think FPS will be the biggest again, but not dominate quite so much.

I'm going to guess Action Adventure. Games like Tomb Raider and Assassins creed where they have open worlds, but they aren't quite RPGS. Heck I even expect Uncharted 4 to have an open world.

Nintendo Switch FC - SW - 5152 - 6393 - 5140 Please feel free to add me :)

This. Open world third person games ala GTA V, Infamous: Second Son, Sunset Overhyped, Watch_Dogs, Assasin's Creed IV, blah blah, blegh.

Can we have a gen with a big variety, and no dominant games?

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. Winner gets avatar control for a month.

Bet with palou: I say Mario Odyssey will sell less than 900k FW in the US, he says more. Winner gets avatar control for a month.

FPS will continue to be the "Blockbuster" franchise in our industry.

Call of Duty will continue to sell 20 Million a Year. Battlefield will continue to push gigantic numbers. Halo will still be a 10 Million seller. Destiny is going to be huge.

Just expect it to shift from a linear genre to a more open world genre.
